    Instructions for setting-up a NuGet private feed on your development machine are given at The following instructions allow you to do the same when running MSBuild on a Build machine such as hosted by Azure.

    1. Add NuGet.config to WebApp project in Visual Studio
      • Add new item NuGet.config to same directory as project.json and edit as below, setting your own username and password (in clear text) as needed to logon to the Telerik site:
        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
                 <add key="Telerik" value="" />
                <add key="Username" value="will.***@****.com" />
                <add key="ClearTextPassword" value="********" />
    1. Edit Build Definition to add step for NuGet installer - In Visual Studio a) select Team Explorer, Builds b) select Build Definition, right click | Edit Build Definition. This opens the Build Definition in your browser - see attached screen shot
    2. In Build Definition editor add build step = Nuget Installer, drag/drop to top of list and specify the solution file as well as the NugGet.config
    3. Save
    4. Save your changes to source control for the WebApp in Visual Studio - i.e. the Build Definition and NuGet.config
    5. Queue a New Build

    I hope this saves someone a bit of time.

    Hello Will,


    Thank you very much for this information. I think it would be indeed useful for many developers that deploy on Azure. 


    I created a GitHub issue for this information to be added in the documentation. If you have any updates you can post comments here:


    As a small token of gratitude for sharing your knowledge with the Kendo community, I am updating your account with some points.
